The USCGC Neah Bay WTGB-105

One of the most high tech icebreakers on the Great Lakes.

From our perspective, having served on the WYTMs back in the 60s and 70s, technology has come a very long way. We were all duly impressed.

We look forward to being able to go aboard during an icebreaking mission to see how these ships break ice.
